A few words about your artistic journey

I am a creative entrepreneur, writer, director, advertising creative and producer. I am a Nipkow fellow and an alumnus of Maisha Film Lab, Berlinale Talents, Durban Talents, Cinemart Rotterdam Lab. I have received grants/awards from the Sundance Institute and Durban Filmmart. In 2018, I was an Odyssee Artist in Residency in Saint Jean D’Angeley France.

How long have you been an artist ?

I have been an artist since 2008.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

I am applied for this grant in order to pay for some of my living expenses as I concentrate on writing a children’s picture book and to pay an editor and the artist who will do the illustrations and the designer who will layout the final ebook.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

I will self publish an illustrated children’s picture book. This is the first of the book series ‘’The Misadventures of Keerabow" which is also the basis of a multimedia franchise that includes books, animated series, toys, T shirts etc.
